Delilah Jameson has the perfect life. A great job in her downtown DC art gallery, a group of girlfriends who will always have her back and Cole; her friend-zoned roommate. Yet, there is something missing; a man she can truly call her own. When online flirting with a complete stranger awakens Dia's sexual curiosity, how far will she go in order to find her happily ever after?
Disarmed by Eva Lenoir was not at all what I expected it to be. It was much more emotional than I anticipated. This isn’t just a story about a submissive fulfilling her fantasties with two Doms. It is a story about a woman learning to let love into her life and not be afraid of it. A large part of her fear comes from never having known her father and having a mother that treated her more like a burden than a daughter. Now that her mother is deathly ill, she is forced to come to terms with their relationship, and the effect it’s had on her life.
Jade is a specialist in modern art, but her greatest love is rebuilding old cars. She does this with the only father figure she has ever had in her life, a man that has been in love with her mother for over 20 years, Stew. After an unsettling phone call, he breaks the news to her about her mother’s dire medical condition. Despite everything, Jade loves her mom, and this news rocks her world.
Jade’s mother is a hippie that cared more about traveling and being free than being saddled with a child or a relationship. This gave Jade some pretty hefty emotional baggage which is why she refuses to let any type of emotional relationship with men occur. Her relationship with her two Doms, Miles and Carson, is sexually satisfying, but that’s as far as she wants it to go. Too bad one of them has other ideas.
Jade is a heroine you can easily sympathize with. I can’t imagine what it would be like to feel so unwanted. I assume that your faith in humanity would definitely have to suffer a little. When she is with her Doms, she is the center of attention and most of all WANTED by them. This seems to be what draws her most to the bdsm lifestyle.
Miles and Carson are best friends that do almost everything together, including Jade. They are hot, alpha, and everything Jade could want in a sexual partner. They both want the best for Jade and each other…not to mention the planet. Did I mention they are extremely environmentally conscious? They drive hybrid cars and design environmentally friendly homes for a living.
This is the second book in the UCC Saga series. It can be read as a stand-a-lone, but there is glimpses of the characters from the first book that you may appreciate more if you read that before this installment. Going into this I thought this was going to be a menage romance, and there would be a lot of hot threesomes involved. I was kind of disappointed that the reality was really more like one threesome. Don’t get me wrong, there is more sex, but it is just between two people. Early on in the book you learn that one of the men have strong feelings for Jade. I normally like for all of the men in any menage romance I read to care about the female equally and vice versa. It didn’t bother me quite as much in this book that that wasn’t the case, because this really isn’t a menage romance. However, I still think that it had an effect on my overall enjoyment in that I thought I was getting one thing and got something else. Jade is with one of the men almost the entire time alone. In fact, the other one is barely involved with her in the story at all. Reading the synopsis certainly didn’t give me that impression. The last line literally says the goal is to win the girl. The joke was on me, because that was the goal…but really only for one of them. I am also not a fan of illness in books, so that didn’t really help matters. There was a few other things I didn’t like, but I won’t get into them here, because I don’t want to spoil too much of the book.
Bottom line, I liked the book, but it was just an okay read for me. That being said, I will still give more of this author’s writing a try, because it wasn’t the writing that I had any issue with. If I would have went into the book blind, my opinion might have been different.
Overall, Disarmed was well written with likeable characters. There is no shortage of steam or kink. The story is well paced, and it was very easy to sit down and read the whole thing in one evening. I have already purchased the first book in this series and hope to read it soon. If you are looking for a romance that is emotional as well as kinky, this one might be for you!
